Follow these care tips to keep your African Violet happy and healthy.

Water: Keep evenly moist but not soggy. Wait until the top 1cm of soil is dry before watering.
Light: African Violets love bright filtered light. They do not tolerate very low light, which leads to slow or stunted growth. Avoid direct Sunlight as well.
Humidity: Average to high humidity will keep your plant happy.
Fertiliser: Feed once a month with a diluted balanced fertiliser or something formulated for African Violets, as PH is important to them.
